Peanuts from Heaven

Welcome to our Twins blog. We'll bring up some "facts" and "stats", from time to time, but our real strength lies in sarcasm, silliness and Yankee-baiting.

  1. Wha Happened #4 (@ White Sox & v.s. Marlins)

    Here's your quick, easy, inaccurate guide to the last week in Twins Baseball
    Game 15

    Cold Weathered Out
    After going all the way to Chicago just to find out that another game would be postponed due to inclement weather, the Twins groaned loudly in protest. Manager Ron Gardenhire's offer to take everyone out for ice cream was a nice thought but...seriously...whose thinking about ice cream on the 79th day of February?

  2. Adopt a Prospect Volume 2: Helping Luis Perdomo get his Groove Back

    When last we left Louie P. he was capping a stellar 2012 season with an abysmal September call-up full of tears, recriminations and the natural side-effects of too much time spent around Jose Bautista.


    It was a tumultuous offseason for Perdomo as well, getting cast down from the opulence of the majors to an out right assignment to Rochester. He also lost his bearded prominence among Twins' pitchers to a couple ...
  3. Wha Happened? #3 (vs Mets and Angels)

    Yeah...that happened. But on the plus side, at least our name isn't a shortened form of the snobby title "Metropolitans". As in: "Oh, how droll! The

  6. Wha Happened? #2 (@ Orioles and Royals)

    We're happy to keep guiding you through the strange but true events of the Twins 2013 season
    *Note: Events are not actually true, but would be very entertaining if they were.

    Here's our second edition of Twins recaps as only we can do them: inaccurately but chock full of puns and bad jokes!

  7. Now closing for the Twins: James Bond

    Growing up, there were three songs that would invariably draw my entire family in to the tv room: "One Shining Moment", "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "The James Bond Theme". Last Friday (after Chris Davis crushed the hopes of Twins fans with a game-winning grand slam), I watched a James Bond documentary (Everything or Nothing available on Netflix streaming) to cheer myself up.

  8. Wha Happened? #1 (v.s. Tigers)

    In an effort to keep my blogging on a more consistent time-line, I have decided that rather than writing when the mood strikes me (or when I sigh dispiritedly at my inactivity), I will try to post short recaps of each series after they wrap up--this way I have a regular time to write and a consistent subject to write about.

    Of course, while lots of people will tell you what happened, only we Peanuts can tell you what happened...in our imagination!

  9. Why the City Pages are Silly

    Like everything else I write: this is also available at our original site: Peanuts from Heaven

    It's a spring-time tradition. When Spring Break arrives, I say goodbye to my students, make a few Arrested Development jokes with my colleagues, and pick up as much as I can find on the impending baseball season




    This year, in addition to the standard season preview issues of Sports Illustrated and ESPN, I also picked up the City Pages, on the basis of it's ominous ...

  11. Our Minnesota Twins (Part 7)

    It's our final Get To Know 'Em post this Spring and we're delighted to send it off in style with two rising talents in the Twins ranks. (And for those who have hated these posts, don't worry...they're done...for now)




    Meet Chris Parmelee! (Right Fielder/First Baseman)
    ...
  12. Our Minnesota Twins (Part 6)

    As we near the end of our introduction to the new and improved Minnesota Twins we consider a few players who might not be around as much as we in the "let's-have-fun-and-laugh-a-little-at-the-Twins" crowd might like.
    Meet Jamey Carroll! (Infielder)
    Player's Background: Jamey Carroll is many things, a scrappy infielder (hey, where have we heard that before?), a clubhouse leader, the last surviving Expo. Above all he is a journeyman utility player who can (and does) play ...
  13. Our Minnesota Twins (Part 5)

    The Twins season begins in less than 1 week! And yet there are still more players to meet as we continue to get to know our versions of the major league roster.


    Meet Brian Dozier! (Second Baseman/Infielder)
    Player's Background: A small, scrappy infielder out of Mississippi, Brian Dozier earned the attention of Twin scouts at the University of Southern Mississippi (presumably because the same year he was drafted Brett Favre [another Southern Miss grad] was working ...
  14. Our Minnesota Twins (Part 4)

    It's your last chance to cruise over to our original site and vote for the PFH Hall of Fame: honoring the funnest Twins players in the history of our blogging.

    We're a week into getting to know OUR versions of the Minnesota Twins. And while there's plenty to cheer for already, there are others we have yet to meet...so here we go!



    Meet Trevor Plouffe! (Third Baseman/Infielder)
    Player's Background: Drafted in 2004, Plouffe's rise to prominence has been ...
